The question has always been, and remains to be, who benefits from neo liberal economic policies?
Who will benefit from the new set of Greek austerity measures? According to author and consultant Adrian Salbuchi, it’s the bankers.
There are two key questions that have to be asked, the first of which is who runs Greece. “Is it the Greek people? Or is it the IMF? The European Central Bank?The European Union? Germany and the private bankers?
The second question, according to Salbuchi, is who all this money is owed to. The sovereign debt crisis, he notes, happens time and again.
“Are bankers that stupid that they always make the mistake of lending too much money to countries? And are governments that stupid that they take loans for much more than they can pay back? Or I insist is this part of a model where, like Shylock’s pound of flesh, the unpayability of these sovereign debts is later used to control entire countries?”
Salbuchi concluded by saying that all governments struggling with the sovereign debt crisis have to make a choice whether to serve the people or the bankers.
“All governments, whether it’s in Greece, in Italy, in Spain, in the UK, in Argentina, all governments today have two choices: they can either govern for the people, or they can govern to favor the bankers and that means that they will always be against the people.”
